On March 31, 2017, Frontiers debuted a new feature at The Forum on Education Abroad’s 13th Annual Conference in Seattle, Washington. The session “Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad presents…” featured presentations by three recently published Frontiers authors who gave session attendees an introduction to their work and offered additional insights and directions for future research.
The panelists were: Tonia Gray, presenting on “Jafari and Transformation: A model to enhance short-term overseas study tours,” co-authored by Timothy Hall, Greg Downey, Colin Sheringham, Benjamin Jones, Anne Power, Son Truong (2016); Victor Savicki, presenting on “Study Abroad Re-Entry: Behavior, Affect, and Cultural Distance,” co-authored with Kelsey Gray (2015); and Christine Anderson, presenting on “Instructor Influence on Student Intercultural Gains and Learning during Instructor-Led, Short-Term Study Abroad,” co-authored with Karl Lorenz and Michael White (2016).
Frontiers authors interested in participating in this event next year should look for a call for proposals in Fall 2017. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
